Actually, the taxpayer was very much represented in the discussion. The cost to the taxpayer is enormous if these essential resources and relationships are NOT provided for these young young people at this critical juncture.
At Just In Time for Foster Youth (www.JitFosterYouth) we help over 400 transitioning youth each year and we see how very little money and a lot of encouragement can make the difference between prison/dependence or self-sufficient productive members of our society.
Not making this small investment it our young people is like nurturing a garden for many years then abandoning it just as it is ready to bloom.
